THE MONTH ~ In Memoriam
Beagle for the Month of Love: Our Boy, Melvin
The BOB Family
Only a few days before Valentine's and sadly, we have lost Melvin to cancer. We knew the day was coming. Our friends
at Toronto Animal Services had removed a malignant mass from his chest in the spring of 2017. We knew it would return, but
we were holding out hope that love would see him through 'til Spring. He so loved to roam the sprawling property at Sheba's
Haven, smelling every blade of grass, wildflower, budding tree. But God had different plans for Melvin and we must accept
that it was his time to leave us. It never gets easy. No matter how many goodbyes our hearts endure.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to Catherine & Bill of Sheba's Haven for never giving up on
Melvin. It took a long time for them to gain his trust and then there were the escape adventures in the country...enough to
send anyone into orbit! But he never strayed far. He knew how loved he was at the Haven. He always returned to it. Perhaps
his spirit is still there.
Happy Valentine's Day, Melvin. You will
always be in our hearts.
Year 2017 was supposed to go down in history as The Year of Major Medical
Emergencies for this little beagle repair shop! But 2018 was a way tougher year! We incurred well over $60,000 in veterinary
costs. In 2017, we were under $50,000 in total. But that's why you support us. We want to be here for the beagles that need
us the most. We've been hit hard due to the costly medical care needed for our arrivals in 2018 and funding has been stretched
to the limit. But you stepped up during our Christmas campaign and we're slowly recovering! Its times like this that make
us especially grateful for YOU! Your ongoing support makes it possible for us to keep from closing our doors while we build
back up that funding in order to reach out to more beagles requiring expensive, live-saving surgeries. The more money we raise
in tough times like this, the quicker we're back on our feet and the more beagles we can save. It's that simple and that's
why it's never too late to lend your support. We're asked to come to the rescue of abandoned beagles practically
on a daily basis. Please help us continue to reach out to beagles throughout 2019 and beyond. You can make a gift to
our beagles for yourself or in honour of a loved one for a special occasion! We'll send them a card on your
behalf so they know the impact you've made in their name. You'll be making twice the difference for that special
someone AND for a rescued beagle!
